The non-26bit compatibility of the A9 would probably not matter much to OEM's who will probably use it for applications where the ability to run *old* RISC OS software is probably not significant to them. Being able to develope *new* 32bit apps (probably specific to that OEM's intended use for the A9) would probably be sufficient.

If the A9 is eventually released (in some form) as a RISC OS portable or desktop machine then it's going to be even more reliant on purely 32bit software than the Iyonix. Given the amount of 32bit software out there now though this is probably less of a problem than it once was.
